When you have dozens of wineries to visit during British Columbia holidays, how do you choose just one? Planning a tripÂ to the Okanagan Valley region of the province means that decision doesn’t have to be made. This March, the Vertical and Vintages Apex Mountain Wine Festival will present the Snowshoe Wine and Cheese Apres Tour, brought to the public by Hoodoo Adventures and Upper Bench Estate Winery. You can reserve rooms at the Walnut Beach Resort and gear up for a spectacular weekend adventure combining fine wine, winter fun and tasty eats.
After embarking on a guided snowshoe tour along the creek side trails of the Apex Mountain village, you’ll be led to an exclusive tasting room, sampling the highest awarded cheeses and wines in British Columbia. Chef Rob Walker will prepare a number of small plates, charcuterie boards and other specialties to complement libations from Hillside Winery, PerseusÂ Winery, Therapy Vineyards and much more.
Of course, Apex Mountain is a spectacular place to ski, too. If you’re looking to expand your stay at the luxurious Osoyoos hotel just a bit longer, make sure to test the slopes and see what else the gorgeous Okanagan and Penticton region has to offer.
